I'm not aware of any work porting to SPARC yet, but there has been
some level of interest from others in the past.

Porting it yourselves is definitely an option; it's not terribly hard,
though familiarity with the code/project helps. Also FYI, a few of the
ports we have now have been done by contributors/members of the musl
community and partly or fully sponsored by organizations that needed
them; if you have funds available there might be someone interested in
picking it up as work. Or if you have students of your own (noticed
the .edu) it could be a good project for them.
